Giants owner worried about Johnny Manziel's off-field behavior

New York Giants co-owner Steve Tisch told TMZ Sports he would be worried about Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel's off-field activities if Manziel played for his team.

Since being drafted 22nd overall by the Browns in May, Manziel has made several tabloid headlines. Just last week Manziel was in the news when the police were called on a party attended by Manziel, Floyd Mayweather and Justin Bieber.

Though he did compliment Browns ownership and said he's rooting for Manziel to succeed, Tisch described how Manziel would not fit in with the Giants' team culture.

"I think if you sorta look at the culture and the history of the Giants, [Johnny] really doesn't fit the profile of, historically, NY Giants football players."

It has been a tumultuous offseason for the Browns. The team brought in a new front office and hired a new head coach in Mike Pettine. On top of the regime change, the franchise has had to deal with Josh Gordon's ongoing legal troubles, which are likely to result in a significant suspension.
